MET Gas was established in 2008 using my initials as the name for the company. After being an employee of several plumbing and heating companies I decided I could work to provide a reliable and cost effective plumbing and heating service to the South Yorkshire area.
I started out as a sole trader, with not much money in my pocket, doing jobs from recommendations and word of mouth.
In 2009 we had grown enough to take on our first employee, who is still with us today. We have continued to grow year on year and now have engineers operating from 7 vans.
Year on year we have continued to grow taking on highly experienced staff, training existing staff, apprentices graduating, new offices and vans every year, this was mainly due to our customer service levels.
In 2015 Hayley (Mikes Wife) came in to the business full time as and equal shareholder director. Hayley has a varied background in purchasing and accounts, She runs the office and the general day to day operations of the companies.
We consider ourselves very lucky to have such a great team of skilled professionals, who genuinely care and take pride in their work. The saying around our team is often ‘Your only as good as your last job’. And with this in mind our staff continues to retain our excellent reputation. I also like one of my old companies ethos or mottos which was service, quality, reliability.
All round plumbing and heating engineer. Dean was trained by Ian Bennett and myself. He was my first apprentice so has the same work styles and ethos as myself.
Our full time service and breakdown engineer Ritchie served his time working for companies such as British Gas, Homeserve and Eon.
A previous employee of mine from when I was a manager somewhere else. Whether he is working on a council contract or installing a top of the range system in a million pound house, his work ethos and quality remain the same.
We took Steven on as an adult apprenticeship as we believe in giving something back. Steven is now Fully qualified after been at Met Gas 5 years.
An all rounder, Mark is our multi trade operative, generally follows the plumbers round patching ceilings wall etc after Insurance claims.
Amanda worked for Home and commercial for 10 years before we took over I have known her for about 12 years is a very experienced Plumbing and heating Administrator, Currently off on maternity leave and is coming back part time from August.
Hayleys sister, Kim’s talents were wasted as a receptionist for a large solicitor, she was bored in her job and as Amanda was going on Maternity Leave she decided to take the plunge and come and work at Met Gas, she has picked the job up very quickly all our customers love her bubbly personality.
Married to Mike one of the business’s co owner’s, Hayley worked in finance and business for many years and after returning to work after having twin boys decided her fantastic range of skills would be better used within the family business.
The teams Mascot, some of our long term customer may remember when in his younger years Charlie used to go in the work van with Mike and Dean, In his older years he much prefers to sit Under Hayley’s Desk in the office.
Having completed an apprenticeship straight from school and gaining further qualifications along the way, Mike now has over 16 years experience in the industry and is passionate about providing Met gas Plumber customers with a first class service with a personal touch.
George is our Adult trainee, George has been with Met Gas just over a year, After a previous career working foe a supplier supplying our spares. George decided that he needed a new challenge, so we gave him a chance to follow his dreams and now he is a valued member of the team.
Just wanted to thank all the team at MET Gas for your prompt action in sorting out my plumbing issues. You came at a time to suit my work, turned up on time and were very tidy.
Needed a gas engineer urgently. MET Gas visited same afternoon and sorted out problem involving gas boiler. Used previously for a repair. Excellent company.
The team at MET Gas has provided me with a professional service whilst doing various plumbing and heating around my new home. Would definitely recommend to others. So nice to see a company that turn up on time are efficient and tidy up after themselves.
On moving day, we had a blocked sink, called the MET Gas team. They turned up earlier than promised and did the job quickly with no mess or fuss.
Mike serviced our boiler. He called on his way, turned up on time and then emailed me the certificate. All round excellent service.
When we had a leak at our office they turned up and fixed the leak, were clean and tidy and left no mess.
Fitted us a new baxi system boiler after our old ideal one failed. Would definitely recommend this company to others Mike and team were very efficient.
MET Gas fitted us a new Worcester boiler, the fitter Alan was very professional, he was clean and tidy and used dust sheets. My home has never been as warm.
Mike and the team replaced my boiler. I now have peace of mind with my new Worcester system boiler. Alan the fitter was excellent and really informative. The office back up was also brilliant.
New boiler and fast working okay. Happy with service received. The fitter Alan was polite and friendly.
Originally came out in April to a leak. The plumber from MET Gas was so friendly & professional & talked through some further works. The lady in the office promptly got me a very reasonable price and booked the works in a reasonable timescale that suited me. Great workmanship, highly recommended.
